Corporate and Commercial Legal Services

McKenna, McCausland & Murphy, P.A. protects your legal rights so you can protect your business. We work closely with business owners of all sizes on a full range of legal services, including but not limited to:

  • Commercial litigation
  • Business insurance coverage disputes
  • Commercial leasing and landlord-tenant matters
  • Business formation and incorporation
  • Business operating agreements
  • Shareholder and Employment agreements

When starting a new business, the owner's attention is rightfully focused on building a client roster as quickly as possible. However, there are certainly risks that should not be overlooked. Advance planning will help you to choose the right type of business formation, based on your unique situation. Let our Counsel review with you the advantages and disadvantages of a C versus S corporation, or an LLC.

If you have shareholders, we can help you document what happens to the business if one partner wants to sell their shares or becomes incapacitated. A properly written Shareholders agreement can help you avoid expensive and emotionally difficult disputes at a future date. Employees also represent a risk to your business. A disgruntled employee can steal valuable trade secrets, or take their knowledge of your business and clients to a competing firm. We can help you safeguard against the threat of the theft of your business. As your business grows, you may consider purchasing another company or even selling yours for the right price. We understand the needs of business clients, and work quickly and efficiently to increase your legal protection in today's competitive environment.

It remains an unfortunate reality that, from time to time, even the best written agreements require judicial enforcement. Our attorneys possess the commercial litigation experience and personal attention that your business needs. Our Clients choose McKenna, McCausland & Murphy, P.A. because we promptly identify pertinent legal issues, timely counsel with our Clients, and zealously advocate within a cost-effective litigation plan. When our Clients' legal disputes cannot be resolved without the actual need for trial, our lawyers are experienced in the preparation of legal argument and evidence necessary to successfully present the case to judge and jury. Whether your business seeks to enforce the terms of a commercial lease, or is embroiled in claims of tortious interference, our attorneys are ready to serve you.
